Togekiss is originally a dual-type Normal / Flying Pokémon at its inception in Generation IV. However, when Generation VI was introduced, and so is the Fairy typing. Togekiss then became Fairy / Flying Pokémon.
Togekiss is a bird-like Pokémon with a white body. Its feet are small and close together, yet its wings are large and triangular. It bears red and blue triangle markings on its underside and a three-feather short tail.
Togekiss is one of Pokémon GO’s undisputed PVP powerhouses and is a species that every player would want on their team for both GO Battle League and raids.
Togekiss is an extremely valuable Fairy/Flying-type in Pokémon GO, but in order to be most effective, players must first learn the Pocket Monster’s best moveset. With 225 in Attack, 198 in Stamina, and 217 in Defense, the Pokémon has solid stats all over.
In Pokémon Sword and Shield, the redirection move Follow Me is Togekiss’ bread and butter. There are only a few other redirectors in the game, and Togekiss is the tankiest. Furthermore, Togekiss can be used as an all-out damage dealer, support, or a hybrid of the two. With that kind of adaptability, it can readily fit into almost any team and do the job.
Gardevoir is a Psychic / Fairy Pokémon, but, just like Togekiss, it was not originally a Fairy Pokémon upon its introduction in Generation III as there were no Fairy-type Pokémon yet. Instead, Gardevoir is a pure Psychic.
Gardevoir is a good Pokémon on paper, but it suffers from being opposed by so many of the league’s top players.
In comparison to prior leagues, at least its high Attack stat is unlimited.
In Pokémon Go, Gardevoir is a Tier 3 raid boss. Gardevoir is one of the most powerful Fairy-type Pokémon to utilize in the meta, and it comes with a tremendous mega evolution.
Shadow Gardevoir is by far the best Fairy type in Pokémon GO, not just because of its massive damage potential, but also because of its dual typing. Although its total damage output is slightly lower than that of some of the game’s other Fairy types, its DPS is second to none, giving it a comfortable.
Sylveon is a pure Fairy-type Pokémon, introduced in the generation when the Fairy-type was also introduced. It is one of the evolutions of Eevee. Sylveon is a mammalian quadruped with delicate cream-colored fur and pink feet, ears, and tail.
It has pale blue eyes, long ears with blue interiors and thicker fur, a little nose, two stray fur tufts on top of its head, and two pointed teeth visible when it opens its mouth. It has two bows on its body: one at the base of its left ear and one at the base of its neck.
Despite its unthreatening appearance, Sylveon’s classification as a Fairy-type Pokémon makes it a logical counter to Pokémon GO’s feared Dragon types. It has two specific type weaknesses, Poison and Steel, although it also has a great variety of type resistances.
In Pokémon Sword and Shield, Every Eeveelution is a terrific Pokémon, but as one of the top and most iconic Fairy types, it’s no surprise that Sylveon remains one of the best Fairy types in Pokémon Sword & Shield.
Its stat total is insane when compared to many other tanks, with its only significant flaws being poor Speed and dismal Defense.
However, this is compensated for in power by providing it the Pixilate ability, which converts all Normal-type techniques into increased Fairy-type. Because of this, skills like Hyper Voice can have an outrageous power ceiling, while other moves like Baby-Doll Eyes and Calm Mind can max out their defenses to outlast your opponent in excruciatingly long fights.
Granbull is a mono-type Fairy Pokémon which was also originally Normal Pokémon upon its inception in Generation II. Its typing was changed in Generation VI. Granbull is a purple bulldog-like Pokémon. It has a large lower jaw that is adorned with two long, fang-like growths. It has two tiny fangs on its top jaw. The Pokémon struggles to keep its head up due to the weight of its jaws. It has flat, curled ears on the sides of its head and a black nose.
Granbull’s high HP and Attack stats allow it to deal damage as well as take hits, making it ideal for bulky offense and balance teams. Its ability to spread and remove status is also useful to such teams, as it allows for good role compression.
It is, after all, one of the few physical Fairy types, so it has something going for it. However, other than Attack, its base stats are quite unimpressive. Given its Speed and SpDef, any decent Special Attacker might easily destroy him.
It does, however, have one very intriguing advantage: it is nearly the only Fairy-type that learns a decent Ground attack.
Ground assaults are extremely useful for Fairies because they are extremely efficient against anything that resists Fairy types. It can also learn Thunder Fang to deal with Pokémon which are resistant to both Flying and Fairy. He’s too slow to sweep, but he can be a good physical tank with Bulk Up.
Florges is a pure Fairy-type Pokémon introduced in Generation VI. Florges is a slim Pokémon with a green lower body and a white top body. It has a rounded head with a pointed, upturned nose, long, teardrop-shaped ears, and black eyes framed by long, green, plantlike lashes. An exquisite bouquet of flowers in red, yellow, orange, blue, or white surrounds its head. It has slim arms with three small fingers and two black diamond-shaped markings on its chest.
Florges surprises opponents by being a mono-Fairy Pokémon despite its appearance implying it is a Grass-type.
Florges still struggles due to its sluggish Charge Moves and unimpressive bulk, despite having access to Fairy Wind.
Florges is actually a rather good Pokémon. Its wonderful Special Bulk, good Special Attack stat, subpar Speed, and helpful movepool make it an excellent supporting Fairy type, and it excels at it. It generally competes with Sylveon in the support role.
6. Galarian Rapidash
Rapidash is purely a Fire-type OG Pokémon, but its Galar variant removes it dashing and fiery flames of a mane into a cutesy cotton candy-colored flowy hair along with the Fire typing. Galarian Rapidash is a Psychic / Fairy dual-type Pokémon.
Galarian Rapidash sports a white coat, pale blue eyes, and a long, curly mane and tail with pastel cyan and pink streaks. It has a considerably longer horn than Kantonian Rapidash, and it is deep violet in color with a spiraling white line running down its length. It has deep violet hooves and fetlocks adorned with long pink fur that stores psychic energy, giving it a swift, airy gait.
It all depends on the composition of your team if you want to have Galarian Rapidash in Pokémon Sword and Shield. I’d make it a Physical Attacker only (because of its tenacity) so you can use STAB Psychic and Fairy Attacks. It has a decent Attack stat as well as Speed, but it is not bulky.
Primarina is a Water / Fairy dual-type Pokémon evolving from Brionne. It is introduced in Generation VII.
Primarina is an aquatic Pokémon that looks like a hybrid of a sea lion and a mermaid. The majority of its body is white, save for a long, blue, fish-like tail. It features a long snout with a big, pink nose, bright blue eyes with long white lashes, and long light blue hair flowing behind its head. On its brow is a tiara-like structure.
In Pokémon GO, Primarina is meant to be a strong bulky offensive attacker with superb all-around dual-typing and access to a multitude of coverage moves. As a bulky water Pokémon, it does encounter competition from other Pokémon, particularly Milotic.
Primarina’s attack stat and excellent Fast Moves like Charm and Waterfall allow her to deliver significant damage in Pokémon GO PvP. However, its disadvantages stem from its lack of size and inability to quickly charge up its Charge Moves.
Water/Fairy is a fairly solid type with only three weaknesses, six resistances, and one immunity.
Water and Fairy also have decent neutral coverage, with only 26 Pokémon resisting it although a few, such as Kartana, Mega Venusaur, and Empoleon, aren’t in Pokémon Sword and Shield. It is a hefty water type with a strong offensive presence. It can tank better than most defensive water types due to its high Special Defense and Special Attack.
Clefable is a mono-type Fairy Pokémon but, obviously, it is not a Fairy Pokémon since it belongs to Generation I. It only changed its typing from Normal to Fairy in Generation VI.
Clefable is a tall pink Pokémon with a star-like body. Long, pointed ears with dark brown tips and black, oval eyes with wrinkles on either side distinguish it. A coiled lock of fur, like its long, tightly curled tail, drapes over its brow.
It features a pair of dark pink wings with three points on its back. It has three fingers on each hand and two clawed toes on each foot with dark pink soles.
Clefable has been a prominent Pokémon in contemporary Singles metagame trends since Generation 6 made a type shift. Clefable’s very good and well-rounded stats, paired with its superb Fairy typing, make him a strong, defensive, and cohesive glue for most teams, regardless of playstyle.
Clefable is one of the game’s most underappreciated defenders. Its Fairy typing gives it an advantage over Dragon, Fighting, and Dark types.
8. Galarian Weezing
The vanilla Weezing is a Poison-type Generation I Pokémon, but its Galarian form is dual-type with Fairy, retaining its Poison-typing. It has a gray body with a skull, crossbones, and ring designs in yellow. On top of each head is a hat-like tube that constantly delivers cleansed air. There are five puffs of green poison gas clouds hovering around it. The gas clouds also partially cover their faces: the larger head has a mustache-like cloud on its upper lip, while the smaller head has brows and a beard on its face.
In Pokémon Sword and Shield, the Galarian Weezing’s Fairy-typing not only improves its already solid defensive qualities but also provides it with some much-needed attacking potential. Weezing’s enhanced resilience and efficacy against Dragon, Fighting, and Dark-type Pokémon transforms it from a conditional pick to a powerhouse. Because of its Poison/Fairy typing, it is viable against many of the game’s main battles, particularly Raihan, Opal, Piers, and Bea in Pokémon Sword. Not only that but Koffing can be obtained fairly early in the game, allowing it to be used for the majority of a playthrough rather than only at the end of the story.
9. Alolan Ninetales
Alolan Ninetales is the regional form of the iconic Ninetales. It evolves from Alolan Vulpix with the help of Ice Stone. It has a pale blue coat with longer, wispier fur than the vanilla Ninetales. The tips of its tails and crest, as well as the bottom regions of its legs, are white. It has a longer crest and nine tails that are less distinct from one another. It also has larger blue eyes and small tufts of fur in front of its ears.
Ninetales is effective against both Dragon and Dark types in Pokémon GO. Both the Ice and Fairy types have a strong offensive presence in the meta. Alolan Ninetales can deal massive amounts of damage to Dragon, Ground, Grass, Flying Fighting, and Dark types. There are a lot of different sorts covered.
It uses little energy and can resist Poison-type Pokémon, which Alolan Ninetales is sensitive to due to its Fairy nature. With so many diverse moves, Alolan Ninetales is a popular Pokémon GO PvP choice in both the Great and Ultra Leagues.
Slurpuf is an ice-cream-looking fairy Pokémon introduced in Generation VI. Slurpuff is a bipedal white Pokémon.
It has reddish-pink eyes with white pupils and is frequently observed with its tongue protruding from the corner of its mouth. Two upper fangs can be seen when its mouth is open.
In Pokémon GO, Slurpuff is a cute addition to Pokémon Go, but its low stats make it unsuitable for the metagame.
Its moveset makes it more appealing for PvP, and it has access to a Fairy-type fast move at the very least.
Just like Clefable, Wigglytuff is originally a Normal-type Pokémon in Generation I. But unlike Clefable, Wigglytuff retains its Normal typing and is a dual-type Normal / Fairy by Generation VI.
Wigglytuff is a leporine-like Pokémon with a bean-shaped body and stubby limbs and legs. Its head has a fluffy, lovely curled tuft of fur. It features long, rabbit-like ears with black inside and slightly lighter tips.
Wigglytuff is one of the greatest tanks available in the Great League. With its incredible stamina and defensive typing, it’s difficult to find a Pokémon GO counter that can safely deal with it.
Aromatisse is a pure Fairy-type Pokémon introduced in Generation VI. Aromatisse is a semi-humanoid bipedal Pokémon. It has fluffy purple fur or feathers covering its head and upper torso. The exact color varies: they are vibrant purple in the official artwork and pinkish-purple in all other Pokémon appearances. A fluffier mass of pink fur wraps across its lower body, resembling a skirt.
Aromatisse, as a Fairy-type, competes with Clefable and Slurpuff, with nearly identical results due to similar bulk and charge move timings. Aromatisse differs from its Fairy counterparts in that it has access to Electric-type coverage in the form of Thunderbolt and Charge Beam for a different style of play.
Whimsicott is once a mono-type Grass Generation V Pokémon but it gained a Fairy typing in Generation VI. Whimsicott is a bipedal Pokémon that is little and brown. It has a cotton-like fluff mane that covers its back, neck, and forehead.
In Pokémon Sword and Shield, it’s one of the best support Pokémon. Support Pokémon are incredibly useful to teams in Pokémon Sword and Shield double bouts. Whimsicott is one of the game’s best support options, appearing on both teams in the first major Pokémon VGC tournament.
Mawile is a Generation III Steel/Fairy dual-type Pokémon introduced in Generation III; prior to Generation VI, it was mono-type Steel Pokémon.
Mawile has one of the best typing in Pokémon GO, with Steel and Fairy giving it a ton of resistance and only two weaknesses. Poison, Normal, Flying, Rock, Grass, Psychic, Dark, Ice, Fairy, Bug, and Dragon-type attacks are all effective against Mawile.
Spritzee is pure Fairy-type Pokémon introduced in Generation VI. Spritzee is a pink, bird-like Pokémon.
It is spherical in shape and has a delicate blue-gray face.
Its curving beak, which resembles a plague doctor’s mask, takes up the majority of its facial region.
While Spritzee and Aromatisse, their evolution, are not the most competitive fairy types, they can be quite useful until you obtain one of the more powerful fairy types, such as Sylveon.
Xerneas is a Legendary pure Fairy-type Pokémon introduced in Generation VI. Xerneas is a quadrupedal Pokémon that looks like a stag and has four pairs of antlers. Its color changes slightly depending on whether it is in Active or Neutral mode.
In Pokémon Go, Xerneas is the most powerful Fairy-type Pokémon in the game. It has excellent stats and a good STAB Charged Move.
Comfey is a pure Fairy-type Pokémon introduced in Generation VII. Comfey is a small, light green Pokémon surrounded by flowers. It has an orange face with oval, light green eyes on its main body. A long, fluffy green crest curls slightly over its face and extends backward from the top of its head. A thin blue thread with several flowers is attached to the back of its head. Comfey is a mono-Fairy type Pokémon with unexpectedly good bulk because of its strong Defense stat.
Comfey is an excellent offensive and support Pokemon in games it appears.
Enamorus is a Fairy/Flying Legendary Pokémon that debuted in Generation VIII. Enamorus is a pink, slim humanoid Pokémon that resembles a genie in Incarnate Forme. There is no male counterpart to this species.
In Pokémon Legends: Arceus However, Enamorous’ moveset simply throws it over the top. Enamorous is one of the best possibilities for a Calm Mind set. Not only is Fairy and Flying a strong type combination, but Enamorous can improve its stats till it’s just above unkillable. It also receives a powerful move that masks most of its flaws.
Given its movepool, Enamorus is a good candidate for the Calm Mind set. It also gets a powerful move that masks most of its flaws.
19. Tapu Fini
Tapu Fini is Fairy / Water Generation VII Pokémon. It is also a Legendary Pokémon. Tapu Fini is a Legendary Pokémon that resembles a swordfish. Tapu Fini has a black body that resembles a mermaid or a fish.
Tapu Fini is useful because it has a diverse move pool and can fill a variety of roles on a team.
Tapu Fini possesses a diverse set of Water, Fairy, Ice, and Psychic techniques that allow it to adapt and leave its opponents guessing because Tapu Fini’s moves are difficult to predict.
Mimikyu is a Ghost/Fairy Pokémon that debuted in Generation VII. Mimikyu is a small Pokémon whose entire body is hidden beneath an old rag. The rag itself is shaped like a Pikachu.
While its offensive stats aren’t particularly impressive with 90 Attack, 96 Speed stats, Mimikyu poses a significant threat to opposing teams due to its incredible ability, Disguise.
This ability allows Mimikyu to take one attack without taking any damage from it. When Mimikyu’s Disguise is broken in Generation VIII, it reduces Mimikyu’s health by 1/8th, giving Mimikyu a free turn to Swords Dance, which is what makes the Pokémon so powerful.
